Gucci Mane Returns to the Trap with New Album; Signs Former DTP Artist, Shawnna

gucci-mane.jpgAtlanta native Gucci Mane will release his third solo album, Back to the Trap House, on November 1 through So Icey Entertainment/Czar Entertainment/Asylum/Atlantic Records. The LP will be his follow up to his two independent albums, Trap House and Hard 2 Kill, and will feature the lead single, “Freaky Gurl,” which features Ludacris. “This album is perfect for my major label debut,” Gucci says. “It felt like the first time all over again, just so fresh and driven.” Back to the Trap House will also feature guest appearances by Rich Boy, Pimp C of UGK and Shawnna, the former first lady of Ludacris’ DTP who Gucci recently signed to his So Icey Entertainment imprint. “A lot gets made about the beefs, but it isn’t about Young Jeezy or any rapper out there,” Gucci says about his new LP. “This is hip-hop. It’s about your swagger, showing off your skills, one-upping everyone else. No one can rest on their laurels because they’re only as hot as their last hot song. I’m out to prove myself as the cat with the best swagger, and if on-upping everyone means taking shots at those people who are supposedly at the top, so be it.”
